Little Yogis

Our baby yoga is based on Hatha yoga which works on the balance of the body & mind. Yoga supports & enhances baby's development both physically & mentally through nurturing touch.

The Little Baby Sanctuary yoga classes offer multi-sensory stimulation through carefully developed movements. Our flowing postures, gentle holds & rhythmic movements have a positive effect on both baby & caregiver. Making yoga a fun, appropriate & rewarding experience.

The feel-good classes involve lively, fun parent & baby interaction, promoting & deepening that special lifelong bond. All making yoga an appropriate & rewarding experience. These classes are perfect for babies from 8 weeks of age to crawling.

Babies are already natural yogis ~

  • Babies practice yoga postures naturally as part of their development.

  • Babies love unconditionally.

  • Babies prefer to breathe through their nose.

  • Babies are only concerned with the present, the here & now.

  • Babies practice non-violence.
